COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) – A Columbus native is playing a starring role in an upcoming movie, which will be released later this month.

Laquan Copeland discovered his passion for theater at a young age while attending Shaw High School. Now he takes his picture on the big screen.

Born and raised in Columbus, Copeland has had roles in films, television shows and commercials. He has had a passion for theater since high school, where he participated in talent shows and drama classes.

It wasn't until I was at Shaw High School and Mrs. Platz, Mrs. Heidi Platz… she was able to put me in my first play called The Yellow Boat and I auditioned for it, Copeland said. I remember walking on stage the first time and I was like, “Oh, man…I really like this, and then we have this whole kind of traditional acting bug.” And that's where it really started for me.

After graduating, Copeland moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams. Her career began with a role in the ABC television series called Grownish.

And it really started to develop once I really started laying the groundwork for the work,” he explained. And from there I started doing more feature films like 19 Summers and so on. This leads to other projects, like Issa Raes' project, Green Light, and then also the new film that just came out, The Dirty South.

Not only does Copeland act, but he also had the opportunity to direct for Warner Brothers and Bleacher Report, creating an animation of LeBron James. In his latest film, he stars in the film Midas.

Midas follows Ricky Pryce. It follows him and his two best friends, Sunita and Victor, played by Preet Kaur and Federico Parra, two incredible co-leads, and he follows us on this quest to pull off this heist on one of the biggest capitals of insurance to the world in Hartford, Connecticut, he said.

Copeland's parents, Demareo and Tara Copeland, say it's been incredible to watch their son develop. The Copelands encouraged parents and those who inspire to pursue this field.

Every parent…if your child has a passion, you know, push them towards it, Tara Copeland said. Don't get stuck in the norm because you want to be a doctor, a lawyer. Let them do what they want.

The most important thing you can do is network, Laquan said. No, it's really true… where your network is your net worth, so be authentic in your relationships, be authentic when you connect with people.
